THE Tribune Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has recently applauded the Oyo State governor, his Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde, for appointing Mr Moses Alao , a staff of Nigerian Tribune and member of the Nigerian Tribune chapel as the special assistant on print media.

According to a statement signed by the chairman Nigerian Tribune chapel, Mr Tunde Busari, and secretary, Mr Adewale Oshodi, the union considered the choice of Alao as apt, saying it was akin to putting a round peg in a round hole.

The statement said Alao’s experience spanning over a decade in journalism would make him discharge his new assignment to the best of his ability.

“As a union, we consider Moses Alao’s appointment as a challenge to him after carving niche for himself in journalism.

“We are, therefore, glad that the governor is giving another member of our union the opportunity to prove his mettle by serving the state government,” the statement said.

Moses Alao, a 36-year-old holder of a Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Arts degrees in Communication and Language Arts from the University of Ibadan, hails from Igboho in Oorelope Local Government Area of Oyo State.

He has 10 years experience in political reporting and other areas of journalism as a reporter with the Nigerian Tribune between 2009 and 2019, with nominations for Political Reporter of the Year 2014 and Newspaper Reporter of the Year 2015 at the Nigerian Media Merit Awards (NMMA) to his credit.
